Skated from P8 > Gatineau Pkwy > Champlain Pkwy > Champlain lookout and back. Fresh grooming, hard packed and fast for skating. They have done a great job removing debris and grooming. Only one bare patch near Huron Lookout and there is still enough snow to sneak around. With the new snow tonight should be a good weekend.

Gatineau Park is ski paradise! The network of ski trails offer machine groomed skate skiing and classic skiing as well as little groomed backcountry trails. Multiple access points allow skiers to access a variety of terrain and scenery. The NCC offers season or daily pay rates.

For suggestions on where to ski, excellent trail descriptions, photos and maps checkout Michael McGoldrick`s website about recreational xc-skiing in Canada`s National Capital Region (with an emphasis on the Gatineau Park).

The NCC also maintains a grooming report on-line. If you encounter people walking on groomed trails, you are best advised to contact the NCC. They are responsible for the enforcement on this so report those trail wreckers whenever you see them by calling 819-827-2020 (Visitor Centre), or email
